Late Rent - Formal Action in Western Australia

This page is still being edited, Get in touch with us here if you have any questions.

In WA a tenant can be sent a breach notice if they are late in rent, this notice gives the tenant 14 days to get the rent paid. If the rent is not paid, the tenant can then be given 7 days notice to move out. 

Alternatively, if a tenant is not showing any indications of getting the rent paid, they can be given a separate notice giving them 7 days to pay the rent otherwise the landlord may apply to the Magistrates Court for an order to terminate the agreement.

The Rent page in your Cubbi dashboard recommends when the notice needs to be given and to create the notice. It's very important this is done through Cubbi because according to tribunal many landlords put an incorrect vacate date on the notice or does not follow the correct process. This results in starting the process again, losing another 3-6 weeks rent.
